After the ‘Zatte’, this is the oldest beer from Brouwerij ‘t IJ. Natte is classed as a ‘dubbel’, a Belgian category of smooth, dark beers. Because we partly use dark malt, Natte has a reddish-brown colour and a smooth, roasted flavour with earthy tones of brown sugar, nuts and plums. Completed with slightly bitter hops, this is a nicely balanced beer and one of the brewery’s classics.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2007
The beer pours to a murky chestnut colored body with a lasting frothy off-white head. A heavy quick carbonation is actively propagating up. The aroma sort of has a bing cherry lactic thing going on. The flavor is nutty toasted almond slices, creamy cheesecake, dry nutty Brazil nuts on the back-end. The palate is rich, creamy, tart, and medium-bodied. The heavy carbonation seems to soften the mouthfeel.

pintocb (651) - Hoon, Georgia, USA - MAY 13, 2007
Reddish brown. Lots of estery caramel and some bitterness. Very dry and has a light body. I had no idea what catergory of beer this would fall into and was very surprised to see that it is a dubbel.

Stine (1746) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2007
Pours to an electrified shade of mahogany red, thick with sediment. Aromas of molasses, charred prunes and figs, cherry favor syrup. Tastes very earthy and dirty - honey, iron, and rotted oak. Rather rich and heavy palate - both intensely carbonated and also sort of lifeless. Lacks gracefulness.

thewolf (11931) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 29, 2007
Bottle. Pours dark clear amber. Head is yellowish off white with small bubbles. Aroma is yeasty with lots of berry-like tones. Oranges, apricot, cherries and raspberries. Quite high carbonation. Taste is ’dark’ - based on caramel and the yeast, it maintains a dry chocolate/peppery darkness to it - and finishes suprisingly sour. Not that terrible full mouthfeel.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 bottled. Dark amber with the the usual ’t IJ unruly head - big, pillowy and rapidly swelling. Fruit, yeast and spice in the nose. Taste is yeasty with some caramel, fruit and rum. Pleasant fruity bitter finish. It’s good, but there’s something not quite right about it.

pubbe (493) - Højbjerg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2007
Bottle. Amber colour with orange hue. Beautifull off-white head of medium duration. It has a very powerful aroma of fruit and yeast. Nice acidity in the fruity aroma. Average finish - but where is the hops?
